Kyle Morrison, 22, has been arrested for trying to storm the American Airlines Arena court without pants during the Miami Heat's win against the Indiana Pacers Tuesday night. He now faces charges of disorderly conduct, resisting an officer with violence, battery on an officer, trespassing, and indecent exposure. Apparently the guy did it because Rick Ross dared him to. 

Morrison is an Orlando resident who attends Jacksonville University. He came to Miami to attend the game. 

According to NBCMiami, he ran down the stairs of Sections 120 and 121 without pants and tried to storm the court. He tried to push a police officer out of the way and struggled to escape while he was being placed in handcuffs. 

So what caused Morrison to drop his pants? Apparently rapper Rick Ross. 

The Boss uploaded a YouTube video of himself sitting front row at one of the Heat-Knicks games and announced, "Listen up. When the finals come, I got ten grand for somebody to streak with just their MMG T-shirt on, screaming out, "

Self Made

, June 26." Hit me up on Twitter. I got ten stack."

MMG stands for Ross's record label, Maybach Music Group. The label's next compilation album, Self Made, Vol. 2, hits stores June 26. 

"I am actually entitled to ten grand because of what I did," Morrison told a judge during his bond hearing. A public defender quickly silenced him. 

That $10,000 should cover his $6,500 bond, except Morrison made one fatal mistake. Ross's bet was for streaking during the finals. The Heat is currently in the midst of the conference semifinals.
